Focusing on the ‘real work’.

In some regions, schools cannot keep up with demand; in others, they require collaboration or assistance because their scale is becoming simply too small. At the same time, the nature of education is changing dramatically: the use of digital resources, increased integration of subject material in connected projects and programmes, combinations of education and social care, and increased requirements in terms of the quality of education and of the environment in which education is given. With increasing frequency, education takes place outside the school – in a practical setting in the private sector, for example – made possible remotely by technology.

Strategic insight and vision are called for in order to continue delivering quality to pupils, students and one’s own co-workers in a situation like this. As a result, the responsibility and liability of the administrators and co-workers increases, the subjects touched by education become broader and now vary from real estate to health, the environment and, of course, level of knowledge. This means that the risk of losing staff is increased, the impact of any wrong decisions is more extensive, and it all has a more immediate effect on the organisation’s functioning and success.

Using knowledge, analysis, data and expertise, Raetsheren helps the administrators of educational institutions to make the right decisions. The risk areas of education (pupil/student, staff, administrators and assets) are familiar territory for us; moreover, we constantly update our knowledge of these. The provision of executive services also ensures that teachers can teach, students can learn, and administrators can administer. Just as it should be.
